He Skates!

by MARIA on February 23, 2010

My 6 year old is all boy in some cases, and yet when it comes to some things, he’s a tentative, shy soul. One of those things is skating – he’s been nervous about it, until this year. He has finally shown real interest in wanting to learn to skate. So we bought him the gear, and just this past weekend, we took him down to the outdoor rink in the Market Square in our city. Here are a few pics of our little Skater man.

And of course, his BIGGEST FAN, watching from the bleachers.

Oh gosh, how I love to start my morning looking at cotton candy sweetness! Oh, too gorgeous for words. Enjoy every minute of those sweet babies’ days. Trust me, as I look at the 19 year old college girl of mine, sitting across from me, those days fly by like the wind.

How exciting!!! It’s a great feeling to see your children achieving and hitting milestones! My 3 year old just peed last night for the first time on the potty. I’m thrilled!
Have a great day!

I love the bar they give them to hold on to. They sure didn’t have stuff like that when I was learning 20 years ago!
